Too Prudish For Me

1922 measuring length of ladies swimming costumes

June 30, 1922.

Washington policeman Bill Norton measuring the distance between knee and suit at the Tidal Basin bathing beach after Col. Sherrell, Superintendent of Public Buildings and Grounds, issued an order that suits not be over six inches above the knee."

That would be no good for me. Some of my bikinis have less material than a handkerchief :-P
